Mitt Romney bails on The View

RomneyNever underestimate how scary Whoopi Goldberg can be. Apparently someone got that message to Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, as the former governor of Massachusetts has bailed on appearing on ABC's The View.

Barbara Walters told The View's audience this morning that Romney had bailed on the show, citing "scheduling problems" and saying he could not find the time to rework it in. This comes a week after Romney refused to participate in a Nickelodeon election special. Will President Barack Obama use this as an opening to return to The View now? 

"I think there are some people who think we favored the Obamas, but they have been on the program separately and together," Walters said. "And Gov. Romney was supposed to be on with us this Thursday with Ann Romney. We were looking forward to it. Over the weekend, his people said that he had scheduling problems and would not be coming on with us, nor at this point did he feel that he could reschedule."

A spokesperson for Romney said that the appearance  "was no longer going to work in the campaign schedule but Mrs. Romney is very excited to join the ladies of The View" this Thursday. 

President Obama and Mrs. Obama appeared together on The View on September 24, which garnered 4.3 million viewers.

mitt romney is and allways will be a liar.its in his blood to lie. this wealthy man has no ideal of what an average person does in a twenty four hour day. people who vote for him are people who still believe we should be in the 1920s when women or other races couldnt vote. the republican party needs to help all americans not just the rich.

Heh.  I was gonna say that with the way he's been putting his foot in his mouth lately, it's not surprising he doesn't want to appear somewhere that embarrassing questions could be asked.  At this point, the fewer opportunities he has to say stupid things, the better off he'll be.  Not that he's got much chance anymore anyway, but, still.
